The article focuses on the meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials (RDC) on nondiabetic patients with hypertension, to study the effectiveness of tight control of systolic blood pressure (SBP) compared with the usual control for reducing left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH). The study concluded that tight systolic blood pressure control was better than usual control in nondiabetic patients with hypertension.
